The former BJP leader, Uma Bharti, on Thursday termed the Allahabad High Court's verdict on Ayodhya title suits as the happiest moment of her life, saying it has proved that Lord Ram was born at that particular site in the temple town.

‘Happiest moment'

“This [Ayodhya verdict] is the happiest moment of my life as the High Court has put its seal of approval on a matter of faith which was a fact for us that Ram Lalla was born at that particular site,” Ms. Uma Bharti told journalists at her residence soon after the court verdict.

“Now, Advaniji and the VHP who headed the Ram Janmabhoomi movement should initiate a dialogue with Muslims to arrive at a consensus on building a grand Ram Temple at the birthplace of Lord Ram,” she said.

“Lord Ram arrived on this earth nearly nine lakh years ago while Babar came here just 500 years ago and this decision has established Lord Ram as the national figure,” she added.

On the court verdict that the place be divided into three parts, Ms. Uma Bharti said that since she had not seen the judgment, it would not be proper on her part to comment on it.

To a question on her re-entry into the BJP, she said she would soon call the press for it.
